Another Player-Friendly Feature at Juicy Stakes Poker
When we think about diving into the fun-filled world of real money online poker for a new poker session, we might take a few factors into consideration. For the particularly serious players, depending on which (or more) of Texas Hold'em or Omaha cash games, various Sit & Go games or online poker tournaments you prefer, you might investigate everything you can about your favourite.
In the case of Juicy Stakes Poker the catchy name itself is already an instant attention-grabber, but this forward-thinking, progressive online poker room continues to impress, and is having no problems building up - and adding to - an impressive poker offering that is succeeding in appealing to everyone from recreational players to stoney-faced grinders.
Another New Feature at Juicy Stakes Poker
The latest new feature that all players would do well to take advantage of is the facility to see your chip count in Big Blinds (BB) as you’re playing. This might not immediately seem important to some players, especially newcomers, but it is in fact a very useful aid indeed, and will prove increasingly helpful the more you incorporate actual numerical calculations into your game.
Number-Crunching or Intuition?
As our opponents educate themselves more and the games become a little tougher, it’s important that we try to make more mathematically sound decisions. If your sphere of poker learning and inspiration comes mainly from far-fetched and totally unrealistic depictions of poker in movies, where the hero demonstrates fearlessness and magical people-reading skills worthy of a superhero, then feel free to try the Old School ‘intuition’ approach if you prefer...
But this was practiced during the good old days of live poker and is anyway quite unsuited to the online version, so it’s probably best you get used to properly exploiting your position, your opponents’ chip count, the tournament situation and loads of other factors that require proper calculation. This task - in the limited time you have in which to make decisions - is made much easier by seeing your chip count in BB, and Juicy Stakes Poker’s new feature enhances your poker experience accordingly.
Note that the facility is not just available for tournament players - if grinding away at cash tables is your thing, or you hunt down Sit & Go jackpots, then you can see your chip stack as BBs in all game types at Juicy Stakes. Simply click anywhere on your nameplate, avatar or cards and it’s done! Alternatively, you can tweak your settings to enable/disable the Show as Big Blinds feature by clicking on Options, heading to the Graphics tab and ticking/unticking Show chips as big blinds for tournaments/cash games option(s).
Finally, our goal at PokerListings is to help our community maximise their options (and boost their bankroll!), so check out the best online poker bonuses and offers in our regularly updated info section.
Good luck at the tables, and have fun!
